A charity that works with employers to promote carer awareness within their organisation is holding a gala fundraising evening to celebrate the support it receives from local businesses.
One in five carers gives up employment because of their caring responsibilities. Working for Carers works with employers to improve line manager training, and to create a compassionate and supportive culture for their employees.
The gala event will focus on supporting staff with caring roles, promoting mental wellbeing in the workplace and why the issue of unpaid care is a growing focus among forward-thinking companies.
Keynote speaker Daran Bailey, a mental wellbeing in the workplace consultant, will be talking about how reducing stress in the workplace can have significant effects on an organisation.
Open to business owners, directors or HR professional who are interested in improving staff retention and wellbeing, the evening will be an opportunity to network, make valuable new contacts and forge new business.
The event will be held on Thursday, March 1 from 6pm to 8.45pm at Devizes Town Hall, St Johns Street, Devizes, SN10 1BN. Tickets cost £36.
